I just came across this image from a project in Venice that I worked on a few years ago. Fond memories!

It got me thinking about what a great solution it was to make this relatively large closet a hidden home office in my client’s den. (If memory serves, he wanted to be able to shut the door on the email and the bills when he was kicking back with his wife.) The next thing you know, I am over to Pinterest, looking for more good images of this concept.

This one was my favorite of the kind where one could actually close the doors on a little office room. The peacock-blue and tomato-red on white color combo is very much after my own heart, and I am all for the impact of pattern. The exuberant wallpaper is perfection!

This is a good concept image where the closet doors are removed. Instead of a hidden office, you have a clearly defined office niche.

And finally, here is my favorite image of a desk incorporated into a cabinetry build-out. The plug-in sconces make it a memorable design.
